Not a lot of knitting is going on, but I'm still working on the Roses are Red shawl (see below), and getting ready to do a KAL beginning August 1st, a shawlette/scarf Unleaving.  I'm using this Sunshine Yarns in fingering weight Coralla Blue from my stash.  Feels good to use up what I already have.

We'll be moving away from Washington state on August 3rd, for Arizona.  We made the decision we were tired of the gray, rainy days and wanted some sunshine to be able to enjoy the outdoors.   It's going to be hard to leave our friends and family, and it's even harder packing things up.   This is what my craft drawers/boxes, etc. look like - waiting to be put into the boxes on the right.   One thing good - I go to bed tired every night so am sleeping real well.  I've already been checking online to see where there will be some LYSs in the area, even though knitting will probably be put on hold once we get unloaded on the other end.   We do have to put our furniture in storage until our new house is ready for us to move in - which could be anywhere from 2 to 10 days.  So I'll be able to knit on the 4-day drive there, as well as some days in a hotel room.   It's been fun picking out what we want in our new home, so am anxious to see what it turns out like.

This is what an "in progress craft pack" looks like!!!!!!!!!!!!
